L2.23 Calculate the median and mode of a set of quantities

*Subject content [reformed] functional skills: Mathematics* (DfE, Feb 2018):

Sparked after reading an article about a UK Which? report in The Guardian newspaper, and made in haste, this resource is aimed at Entry Level 3 (E3) and Level 1 (L1) learners but includes some E1-2 and L2 questions. There is no answer sheet – one *might* appear later for skillsworkshop contributors – but the teaching notes do include general marking guidance.

A great way to explore the different meanings and uses of mean, mode and median.

**Editor's note (May 13, 2021)**

This resource has had a major update and is now mapped to the Reformed Functional Skills Maths content. NEW answer sheet is also now available (contributors only) with detailed curriculum mapping - visit our ANSWER SHEETS page for more information.
